Mental Health Question #20
The nurse is preparing the plan of care for a new client admitted with anorexia nervosa. Which nursing actions will be most appropriate for the client with anorexia nervosa? Select all that apply.
- Instruct on eating three meals per day.
- Instruct on keeping a meal journal.
- Instruct on eating small frequent meals.
- Monitor weight daily at same time after voiding.
The client with anorexia nervosa should eat small, frequent meals, not only three/day since the client will not be able to eat the amount needed in only three attempts.
